OIC responds to Israeli Army brutal aggression

RIYADH- The Organization of Islamic Cooperation has roundly condemned the brutal aggression by the Israeli occupation forces on unarmed Palestinian civilians marching peacefully in commemoration of Palestinian Land Day.

OIC Secretary General Dr. Yousef Al-Othaimeen, in a statement, said Israel, the occupying force, bears full responsibility for the scale and gravity of its ongoing aggression and war crimes against the Palestinian people.

He demanded immediate intervention by the UN Security Council to stop Israeli continuing assault, ensure international protection for the Palestinian people, and pressure Israel to observe its commitments and to comply with humanitarian law and internationally recognized resolutions.

The Secretary General stressed the need for engagement on part of the international community to promote a political process conducive to a two-state peaceful solution.
